Here's the Scoop...

The White House shared a video showing President Barack Obama taking some time to putt and chat healthcare with Bill Murray in the Oval Office.

"Generally, I don't let Cubs fans into the Oval Office," Obama says at the start of the Twitter clip, which then shows Murray, bearing a Chicago Cubs patch on his sleeve, working on putting a golf ball into a sideways glass.

"It's probably not a coincidence that your popularity is at an all-time high, so I would just stick with this if I were you, I would just ride this baby," Murray says.

Murray appears to be the more skilled golfer, but he soon reveals a shameful secret -- he doesn't have health insurance.

The video turns out to be a promotion for the Affordable Care Act's HealthCare.gov marketplace.

Be Well,

Ryan Reynolds dedicates Critics' Choice Award to Make-A-Wish
Ryan Reynolds dedicated his first-ever Critics' Choice Award to the Make-A-Wish Foundation on Sunday.

The 40-year-old Deadpool star gave a shoutout to the non-profit and the SickKids Foundation of Toronto during his acceptance speech for Entertainer of the Year.

"Deadpool was an 11-year odyssey for me to get up here, and it resonated with a lot of people. The character had cancer, and some of the people that this character resonated with were sick kids. I would like to dedicate this honor to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the SickKids Foundation of Toronto, two incredible organizations that do so much for so many kids in need," Reynolds told the audience.

"I would also like to dedicate this award to the memory of my friends Connor McGrath and Grace Bowen," he added, recognizing two young children who died of cancer. "They didn't lose the battle, but they started a fight and it's up to us to finish it."

"I also want to thank my wife and, for no reason at all, I suppose my children," he later joked of actress Blake Lively and their two daughters.

Reynolds also won Best Actor in a Comedy for Deadpool, but lost Best Actor in an Action Movie to Andrew Garfield for Hacksaw Ridge. Deadpool won Best Comedy, but lost Best Action Movie to Hacksaw Ridge.

Deadpool opened in theaters in February and earned over $782 million at the box office. The movie is now nominated for Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy and Best Actor - Musical or Comedy for Reynolds at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards.

"Thank you, Golden Globes! As we speak, the entire Deadpool team is engaged in a grotesque, early morning tickle fight," Reynolds tweeted Monday after the announcement.

Bryan Cranston revives Walter White character for 'SNL'
Bryan Cranston revived his iconic, Breaking Bad character Walter White for this weekend's edition of Saturday Night Live.

Cranston appeared in the show's cold open, which saw Beck Bennett channeling CNN anchor Jake Tapper and interviewing Donald Trump's spokeswoman Kellyanne Conway [played by Kate McKinnon] about the president-elect's recent cabinet appointments.

The joke was that White -- a fictional, science teacher-turned-meth dealer -- had been tapped to head up the nation's Drug Enforcement Agency. The SNL clip has gotten more than 700,000 views on YouTube in less than 24 hours.

"Walter is amazing. He came highly recommended by Steve Bannon," Conway said.

"Oh, yeah, Steve's the best," White agreed. "We've had some times."

Asked where Bannon found him, White replied, "Under the comments section at Breitbart and I'm really surprised he tracked me down because I've kind of been off the grid for a while."

Pressed to describe what he knows about drug enforcement, White laughed and said: "I know the DEA better than anyone. Inside and out."

Which reunited rock band sold 1M concert tickets in 24 hours?

Guns N' Roses has sold more than 1 million tickets in 24 hours, Live Nation announced.

The fast-selling tickets were for the upcoming 2017 U.K., European and Canadian legs of the group's Not in This Lifetime concert tour.

Tickets for the 2017 U.S. shows go on sale Saturday via Ticketmaster.

Axl Rose and former members Slash and Duff McKagan will regroup for the eagerly awaited concerts. The reunion was announced in March.

Lead guitarist Slash left the band in 1996. Front man Rose has since continued to perform with other musicians under the GNR banner, however, the group has never been as popular as it was in the 1980s and early '90s when both Slash and Rose shared the stage.
